The chicks already have all of their wing and tail feathers and some on their shoulders, too. Their legs also turned 'slate' coloured, which is one of the traits of Ameraucanas.
I have to get a better picture of this one. He has the prettiest feathers - so he'll end up being a loud, obnoxious rooster, I'm sure.
Speaking of which, 3 roosters is still way too many around here. They're loud (they seem to have crowing competitions with each other starting at 4 am and lasting all day), they eat a ton and they seem like they'd serve a far better purpose on our plates than chasing the hens around pulling their feathers out. I've been told that nicer roosters will do a little flirty dance for their hens and call out to them when they find bugs and worms. These guys do none of that! We've got two meat roosters left and then the Light Sussex rooster, Hannibal the biter (his 'girlfriend' Light Sussex hen is Clarice). Zebra Head will get to stay, for now, to see if one rooster around here is more manageable. He is huge but he's still more interested in lazing around than in any jerk rooster activities.
Our tomatoes look so fancy on the stand in their new containers!
